At the beginning of the twentieth century, Wistano Luiz Orozco was known in San Luis Potosí as a professional related to the state government, a skilled lawyer, friend of politicians, landowners, and medium and small owners. This book reconstructs his professional career from 1884 until 1910 that coincided with the years of the Porfirio Díaz regime; striking problems such as claims for democracy, complaints against corruption, changes in land tenure, wasteland companies, the struggles of smallholders and communities to defend their lands, and the facile use of the law and the justice apparatus by the elites.
